 TORONTO, May 5 (Reuters) - Toronto's resource-heavy main
stock index tumbled lower on Wednesday on fears that Greece's
debt crisis could spread to other euro zone countries and
derail economic recovery.
  The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially closed down 155.75 points, or 1.29
percent, at 11,875.11, hurt by big drops in oil and other
commodity prices. Earlier, it touched a low of 11,754.28, its
weakest level since early March.
